  1. ignition spark table

    my story had been told on here and I have had much help from members so again...Thanks! Will re-cap but keep it short. I inhereted a non running 82 280zxt with MS3 that had previously been on the road and then died. I am old school, but am learning this tuner stuff as fast as I can. Anyway, have had the car running for a while (thanks again) but have had some various issues so it now has me questioning my spark advance table. I did not build this table, it was given to me amongst all the data I got with the car so I don't know its origin. I have compared it to a few others I have found on line and it looks quite different. Can someone with a similiar setup compare to what theirs looks like an tell me if this table looks reasonably close? The values seem high to me based on what I have read and somewhat backwards in some ways as well... I attached a pic of the table as well as the ign settings. I expect there are more questions that I will need to answer to get help so feel free to ask them and I will answer to the best of my ability. Thanks Jeff
  2. WTB Turbo T5 bellhousing

    Did you get your bell housing? I have a SBC T5 bellhousing that I just replaced with a blowproof so I no longer need it. Not sure if this is what you are looking for since you specified "turbo t5 bellhousing".. Let me know, Thanks Jeff
  3. Pulled tranny and found the problem. My centerforce II clutch failed. All the friction pads from one side are gone! Not worn off, just gone.... Contacting them now to see if can get some help as I expect it should not have done that... While I have it all apart, I may convert to an Automatic. Anybody interested in G-force T5?
  4. WTB T5 Trans

    I am considering swapping to an automatic and if so would be looking to sell my G-force T5. I have not decided what I would be asking for it, looks like new ones are up around $3500. If you are interested or needing one to handle lots of HP, let me know and I will figure out what its worth to me. Still on the fence about the swap so trying to work the numbers!
  5. AFM fluctuation

    I do, I will take a look at that and see. Will come back when I have done so. Thanks!
  6. AFM fluctuation

    Its an innovate digital db series wideband.
  7. AFM fluctuation

    I have a different thread on here for a different issue but that has been resolved (thanks everybody) so started a new one for a much less severe issue. I have an 81 zxt running MS3 and an innovate O2 sensor. Car seems to run pretty good but was curious about some finer tuning so hooked up a digital AFM gage. Driving down the highway at steady throttle/cruise, my readout is all over the place from 12 to 14, so much so that I really have to guess to determine the average. The car is running smooth etc so all would seem fine but my gage is telling me my fuel mixture is all over the place. I am an old school mechanic, but am pretty green to this tuner world where computers are in control instead of a carburetor. I cant imagine this much fluctuation is normal...is it? If not, would be open to any clues as to where to look to get it settled down. Thanks Jeff
  8. I remember it is a centerforce clutch, but that's all I can tell you. Has been a long time since I did all that. I tightened up the linkage and it had no effect. regarding the 7/8" of travel, is that measured a the bell housing or at the slave?
  9. Camaro slave, not Clamato slave...stupid auto correct.
  10. So my build is about ten years old so have forgotten more about it than I care to admit. I started noticing it was starting to get hard to run thru the gears. It worked, just found I had to be deliberate about my shifts. It finally failed all together and would not let me shift at all. Pedal seemed a little soft, but not to the point of total failure. I assumed issue was in hydraulics so went after that. Bleed the system, removed, disassembled and inspected the slave cylinder, replaced the master, re did some of my connections and still no go. (Using Clamato slave, f250 master and steel braided line. I can see the slave working and pushing the arm, but don't know if it is pushing it far enough. Can someone with similar setup or knowledge tell me approx how far the slave should be pushing the fork. I honestly never looked when it worked to have a visual ref of how far it needs to extend. If not a hydraulic issue, any ideas as to what it is before I drop the trans? Again, was a gradual failure, not instant carnage or breakage, Thanks guys Jeff
  11. 81 ZX turbo, died on the road, no spark.

    Thanks! I owe a LOT of the credit to Matt Cramer at Diyautotune. Was very helpful!
  12. 81 ZX turbo, died on the road, no spark.

    Follow up, finally got it to fire up yesterday. Not running good yet, but is running. I found that my bip373 had shorted out between the metal tab and the ms3 box. It had all the right plastic and insulators in place, but it had continuity between the tab and the bar it screws to. I could barely back off on the screw and the short went away. Now I just have to get it tuned, idles really rough and is rich as heck! But it starts!

    Metro, I just realized I attached a data log file and thats not what you asked for. Lets try this again. 2016-03-04_15.41.38.zip

    oops, trying to attach file again.. 2016-02-29_10.50.18.zip
  15. 81 ZX turbo, died on the road, no spark.

    Ya, I understand the circuit has to break for the coil to fire. I did remove the tach wire last night just in case that was giving a ground path. I did bypass that relay one time with a direct 12v jumper just to see if it did anything. It did not. Here is a file of just me briefly cranking it over..I also have the data log of when it died. Will upload that as well if helpful.
